BAM is one of the few places in the world you will find truly progressive, forward thinking live performances (music, dance, theater, opera) with top-notch productions. If you enjoy the arts and are interested in seeing the future of the performing arts, this is the place to find it. Truly a New York treasure.

Being a Bam friend is a great deal, they have this special parties with wine and cheese and really great crowed. Also you can get discount tickets. The opera is amazing, the acoustics are particularly terrific

This is Brooklyn's number one destination for independent, foreign and classic film screenings. It can get crowded at times so get your tickets in advance. They building itself is a historic beauty both inside and out.

A visit to Brooklyn would not be complete without checking out BAM. This building houses Rose Cinema (the usual blockbusters & less common offerings like Oscar Nominated Animation) and the Opera House (where you can see grand productions like Semele and the American Ballet Theater in the winter). BAM also offers free WiFi.

Went here for their Lady Vengeance movie series and saw a flashback film from the 1970s. Very big building with modern facilities. They run a tight ship here with plenty of ushers and a knowledgeable ticket booth. The theater was of medium size and steep enough that you didn't have to worry about the person in front of you. Very cool experience and I'll definitely be going back.

Went to the opera last night and had to pick up tickets at "will call" desk. Very well organized process but overwhelmed with people. People everywhere. Long line took 5 minutes. It's a zoo in the lobby. At intermission had to go to the men's room which turns out to be upstairs. There is a bar/lounge upstairs and again, a zoo. Theater is old and wonderful. BAM Bus back to Manhattan is terrific. Parked right outside. With reservation, just get on and pay and sit down. Goes up Third Avenue making stops at major intersections. Very much enjoyed the experience.

A nice traditional building with great staff that are ready and willing to assist anybody who even looks like they need help. I usually go to BAM for the movie theater which is nice, quiet, and quaint. It's not too big, so you don't have to worry about temperature, as a smaller room is easier to control. Having been to the movies here so much I am kept in the know about what is going on with the opera and other events coming to this great fixture in Brooklyn. -blasianFMA
